To take part in The Way Home you’ll need to download the four audio files from the SoundCloud links on your right and save them onto an mp3 player or phone. They should only take a few minutes to download. Download the map here by right clicking and choosing ‘save link as’ so you can print out a copy to take with you, although full directions are given in the audio files.
The walk starts and ends in Hackney Town Hall Square. It meanders around the streets of Hackney Central and takes a little over an hour to complete. The walk is wheelchair accessible; although at one point there are some stairs an alternative route is suggested if stairs are not accessible for you. Prepare for all weathers and as always in London be careful crossing roads.
The walk is best experienced in daylight, Monday to Friday or Saturday before 1 pm but can be walked at other times if this is not possible.
More information about the route is available on the google map below. For more detail on some aspects of housing history please explore the other pages of this site.
